Bitcoin (BTC) buyers took some profits after the cryptocurrency reached an all-time price high near $68,950 on Wednesday. The cryptocurrency is down about 2% over the past 24 hours and could find lower support around the $56,000-$60,000 price range.
Upside momentum is starting to slow, especially given recent overbought signals on the charts. This suggests BTC’s pullback could extend into Asian trading hours, although buyers will likely return around $60,000.
The relative strength index (RSI) on the daily chart is at the highest level since Oct. 20, which preceded a near-10% drop in BTC’s price.
Further, BTC’s recent all-time price high occurred on lower trading volume and a weaker RSI reading, which means additional buying activity could be limited over the short term.
